Pellet Therapy Treatment in Charleston, SC
Bioidentical hormone therapy—also known as BHRT—is quickly becoming a very popular treatment for a variety of hormone imbalance. While BHRT is itself a specialized form of hormone replacement therapy that utilizes only biologically identical hormones, it has many different delivery methods.
Pellet therapy is one of the most refined and extraordinary hormone therapy delivery methods. Pellet therapy is delivered in a way that may help prevent many of the downsides and side-effects typically associated with BHRT.

How Pellet Therapy Works
BHRT is different than other hormone therapy delivery methods, which may include oral pills, infections or creams applied to the skin
Unlike some of those other methods, pellet therapy is:
- Delivered consistently: Many other hormone therapy delivery methods are subject to the roller-coaster effect. Because the hormones in those methods are delivered all at once, it can often be a shock to the system. The subcutaneous pellets on the other hand, are delivered consistently, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
- Long-lasting: Other common pellet therapy methods must be administered daily or weekly. Pellet therapy is instead delivered just once, with a single pellet often lasting months at a time. This provides a solution that many find more convenient.
- Easy to handle: Other bioidentical hormone delivery methods are typically self-administered. This means that there is far less room for mistakes and user error. The pelleting procedure is most often administered by a medical professional in an office setting.
Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy Treatment
Pellet therapy treats many conditions, the majority of which are forms of hormonal imbalance. The amount of hormones prescribed during a pellet therapy treatment course typically varies depending on the nature of your symptoms. Pellet therapy treatment is available for both men and women.
For women, pellet therapy may provide relief from:
- Mood swings
- Low libido
- Bone loss
For men, pellet therapy may help with:
- Andropause / low testosterone
- Erectile dysfunction
- Lack of focus
- Low libido
Both pellet therapy for men and pellet therapy for women are administered in the same way, although the hormones being utilized may differ greatly. Pellet therapy treatment typically begins with an initial consultation.
